2011 Remelluri Reserva Rioja DOC, Spain

This Reserva Rioja is a blend of Tempranillo grapes from vineyards between 10 and 90 years old, along with smaller amounts of Garnacha, Graciano and even the white grapes, Viura and Malvasia.  While many traditional Riojas rely heavily on new American oak that often takes over the wine, the oak here is well integrated and adds perhaps just a bit of spice to the earthy, dark black fruit flavors. Remelluri uses a mix of American and French oak barrels in various sizes ranging from small 225 liter barrique for the Tempranillo and large 600 liter demi-muids casks for the Garnacha.
